What to do next, if COVID-19 positive is refused isolation?


MangroveIf the hospital or the Local Chief Executive refuses to isolate you, being COVID-19 positive, in a health facility because of lack of space or could no longer be accommodated, what will you do? I advice that you do steam inhalation therapy, at home, to contain the virus and prevent its further spread, by killing it through the therapy.

The therapy is based on the coughing reflex mechanism of a human body, wherein cough is managed with steam or water vapor to produce mucusal fluids in the lungs or throat to facilitate the coughing out of offending microorganism or elements. Likewise, it has anti-inflammatory property just like in a warm compress, hence, it aids in the healing process of the lungs by way of controlling or getting rid of inflammation caused by dry cough or offending microorganism or foreign elements, which is manifested by bearable pain when inhaling.

Here is the Procedure:

  1. Boil water in a kettle.
  2. If it is already boiling, take out the kettle from the burner and open it.
  3. Wait for few seconds until the heat of the water vapor is already bearable then place your mouth and nostril above the water vapor.
  4. Inhale the water vapor, if you want to cleanse the lungs, with deep breathing or maximal expansion of the chest and lungs. If itchiness, pain or cough is present while inhaling, continue the process until the itchiness, pain or cough is gone. Sometimes, you need to rest but see to it that you repeat the process, until the itchiness, pain or cough is gone.
  5. Cough out, expectorate or expel the phlegm in a secured container containing ethyl alcohol, if there is and dispose it properly.
  6. If you want to cleanse the throat or nasophrynx, sip in, forcefully, with deep breathing or maximal expansion of the chest and lungs, the water vapor through the mouth. Repeat if itchiness, pain or cough persists until it is gone.
  7. Cough out, expectorate or expel the phlegm in a secured container containing ethyl alcohol, if there is and dispose it properly.
  8. Observe the cough, itchiness or pain if it recurs. If positive, then repeat the therapy.

Salt mixed in the boiled water and/or using a blanket to cover you from head to foot, with the kettle inside, may help. NOTE: The basis of repeating the therapy, which is manifested by cough, itchiness or bearable pain during inhaling or forceful sipping in of water vapor into the lungs or throat, respectively, is the presence of the offending microorganism or elements.

Steam Inhalation Therapy: Answer to COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 Pandemic brings to fore various behavioral reactions of different sectors of the society, worldwide, and it seems that everybody was caught by total surprise. There is lockdown and other terms that could only be heard today.

Is COVID-19 really deserving to win to fix or influence the behavior of the society? Or what is really wrong with the present behaviors against a virus, with a very minimal fatality rate. Is the society merely over-acting? Or is it not fully aware of what the virus is? And who is winning now? Is it the virus or humanity?

From the standpoint of one of the COVID-19 sufferers, she testified that the virus causes irritation of the throat, causes dry cough and thereafter causing fever, as substantial full manifestation of the disease. I doubt if others would testify otherwise, or testify that the initially affected area is not in the respiratory tract.

If the dilemma materializes in the respiratory tract of a person, specifically in the throat, why focus too much on various areas or venues, e.g. too much concern on quarantine pass, where the battle against a virus can be won? Of course, it is not likely on the surfaces, paper money bills or hands, etc., where this virus comes in contact with, either accidentally or {maybe} intentionally, but on the part of the human body, where it first manifests. In short, pull the trigger when you see already the enemy and do it at the battlefield or in the part of the body, where it first manifested. Otherwise, it would be very messy and expensive using your efforts towards an unseen enemy. (more…)
